Morn, a Lurian male

The Lurians were an alien species from the planet Luria and were rarely seen outside of the Ionite Nebula region. (DS9: "The Way of the Warrior")

The Lurian government was controlled by the Royal Family of Luria. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")

Physiology and culture

Lurians were known to have multiple hearts, (DS9: "Through the Looking Glass") four lungs at the minimum, (DS9: "The Sound of Her Voice") and two stomachs. As a result, they were not only more resistant to damage than most species, but were also able to withstand poisons and other toxins much better. They were able to store liquids in their second stomach for many years if necessary.

The average Lurian was approximately the same height as the average Human (perhaps a few centimeters taller), but had a much broader and heavier body. Lurians were grayish- or tan-skinned beings descended from mammals. Their most noteworthy feature was their narrow, elongated heads. They had wide mouths, puggish noses, and small, deep-set eyes.

Morn (pictured) was the only Lurian ever seen on screen, but it was stated that most Lurians actually did have hair; Morn had just gone bald.

It was a Lurian custom to bring gifts of food and drink for the deceased so they would have something to sustain them in the afterlife. (DS9: "Who Mourns for Morn?")
